Etz Chaim leads the way in new Sunday Volunteer efforts at the Atlanta Food Bank.  The Food Bank is now offering Sunday slots!  There are 40 spaces available for each shift.  Shifts available: 1-4 p.m. on 1/25/15 and 3/22/15, and “Coming Soon” 4/19/15.  Register at<>. Click on the “individual” tab on the right.  Click “register for an event.”  The system will prompt you to enter an email address and first name.  If your profile is not in the system, the system will prompt you to create one.  Once the profile is created, you can self-register for the available shifts.  (Volunteers inspect, sort and pack quality grocery items for distribution to over 600 non-profit organizations in the Metro Atlanta and North Georgia area.)  Questions, contact [email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>. Children between 8-17 are welcome to volunteer but must be accompanied by an adult.

Etz Chaim is...

Congregation Etz Chaim is a progressive, egalitarian Conservative synagogue that provides meaningful Jewish experiences in a welcoming, engaging environment.  We offer:


Inspiring religious services
Educational, social, and cultural activities, serving multi-generational needs
A caring community that supports each other through both joyful and challenging life cycle events
Connections with the broader community and opportunities for Tikkun Olam...

Our intention, in all activities, is to provide an environment of warmth and an opportunity for personal growth. We celebrate together, we pray together, and we learn together, making Etz Chaim truly a home away from home. 


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Come and get involved with your community!
